Panel Session 1: Intra-Africa Connectivity, Collaboration and Innovation

In order to actualise our reimagined African futures, we must acknowledge our fragilities, celebrate our growth and map our collective path to prosperity. There is a need for continuous dialogue amongst African innovation leaders, in order to improve cross-sectoral collaboration and connectivity. Collective, inclusive action allows us to build African solutions better and faster. This panel will challenge decision makers, innovators, thinkers and doers to develop solutions leveraging Africa’s genius.
